Weekend Recap - June 26
Wow! What a weekend! Lots to share.
Salmon & Trout action is really good now at nearly every Port on Lake Ontario.
We often talk about peak periods throughout the season, and we are now in the summer peak time. Thermocline is setting up, the weather/winds is rather stable and there's lots of bait & fish around.
Locally, from Port Dalhousie to Grimsby 120-200 FOW is a good starting spot.
Water is getting warm in shallower, that's where a Down Speed & Temp Unit (Like a Fish Hawk) will be able to help you find the temp breaks, as well of course keeping your speed dialed in with the current.
Here's a few key items that have been going well for many lately.
A couple event took place on Saturday as well on Lake Ontario ,
Congratulations to the top finishers in the Port Whitby and Port Credit Derby this weekend. Here are your 1st place winners. Team Roughneck with a 3 fish box total of 68.74lbs, and also landing Biggest fish for 1st and 2nd in the Port Whitby Sport Fishing Association derby. Team Whiskey Bent took 1st in the Port Credit Salmon and Trout Association derby with a 3 fish box total of 51.78lbs.
Lots happening on lake Erie too! Special congrats to our friends from Team Never Enough on winning the Budwieser Walleye Tournament out of Port Colborne. Their winning 4 fish box was anchored by a 13 lbr to seal the deal.
Seems like fishing is getting a little better off shore for those wanting numbers of fish. Worms harnesses on divers and Jets. The areas of Nanticoke around to Burwell also doing well with some steelhead still too. Worm harnesses & spoons.
Bass season opened on Erie this Saturday too. Good numbers fish being caught in shallow. Marabou hair jigs, drop shotting plastics, tube jigs & small swim baits are great techniques.
Special congrats to our friends Ed & Aaron on winning the CBAF Crystal Beach Tournament with a whopping 28.65 lbs !
Canada Day Long weekend and the start to Summer vacation coming up!
